This week starts something totally new (at least sort of). I can get into that another time but here are some drawings I have been working on:
First up – some rendering practice (read CRAPPY) with a regular ball point pen. I say crappy because there are all kinds of errors in the drawings, but I continued anyways just to see how I could create some sort of depth with the pen. Came out “OK” but could be a lot better.
Next up are some very quick sketch drawings while watching Sherlock. These types of sketches are difficult as I have to tap into my visual memory in order to remember a scene and put it down as fast as I can. Most scenes in any show have so many cuts from one camera to the next, you really do not realize it until you are actually trying to draw them. PHEW!
Next is a fun drawing I did while at a group that does “pub crawling” around the area. They sing shanty songs and drink beer. What could be better than that? Best part is, the guy I drew actually had a real eye patch. How badass is that 😀
Failed attempt at capturing a likeness while at dinner last night. Still wanted to complete it a bit more to finish out the sketch.
First stage of an in situ watercolor painting of one of our “treez” we have outside. Funny thing is that there are two trees and a bush in the center mass (one pine, one bush, and one leafy tree <— need to get better with what it actually is).
This week a little bit more of an update with the fan art piece as well as two sketches from two different places outside.
Just a quick sketch this week from a Webelos ceremony.
As the title suggests I tried my hand at sketching a 5k today. Just a little glimpse into an area by the park. Pretty difficult to get my visual memory to snap shot people in motion that literally do not hold still even for a millisecond. Overall, it came out ok. Wish I could have drawn the GIANT thunderstorm that followed…but, well that would have been a mess. 🙂
Back to sketching with the sketch group for the year. A good kick in the pants to get back into the groove of outside of the house (and mind) sketching to hone the skillzorz.
Still working slowly on the large fan art piece. Underestimated the time it was going to take to complete that one. Probably over 50+ hours so far. In the mean time some sketch goodness to fill in the gaps 😀
Having 6-9 months of grey really makes you appreciate the time you can spend outside to do some drawing. A couple of sketch sessions out and about.
A quick one for those in TV land who watched some TV during Easter Sunday.
Still working on my big piece day by day. It is a tough one for me, because there is so much going on in the picture.
And of course some sketch meanderings from the past week.
Here are a few things from this past week that have been rambling through my brainicles.
Annnnd another update to my current WIP:
